If at least two thirds of the tournament’s teams agree with this plan, it will be officially approved. According to journalist Wojnarowski, the tournament management team and the NBA Players Association are actively working to finalize the aforementioned plan before launching it at a meeting next Thursday.

The format for the rest of the 2019/2020 season has not yet been revealed. The options that are being mentioned now are that the teams will only play a few more Regular Season matches then there will be a small tournament to determine the final Playoffs and then enter the Playoffs. It is also not excluded that the teams will immediately enter the Playoffs round when this season comes back.

The management team is also considering a plan to not split the paired confrontation according to the domain in the Playoffs this season. This will help ensure more fairness for the teams in the West. On the current standings, the 13th place Western Phoenix Suns are even better than the East 9th place Washington Wizards.

It is likely that only the teams that still have many chances to compete for the Playoffs this season will be able to play in this season. In addition to the 16 teams with the best results in the rankings, the remaining names that still have the opportunity to play may be Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Suns and Wizards.

In the past, the NBA management had not supported the option to split the regional match in the Playoffs. They said that if an Eastern team met a Western team in a 7-game series of Round 7 Playoffs, the teams would be too hard to move. With the Playoffs this season only taking place in one location, the above plan suddenly became very feasible.

All will have to wait until the meeting of the NBA leaders on Thursday this week to know more about the fate of this season. It is expected that after the aforementioned meeting, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will also make an official decision for the rest of this season.
